Two Korean-American teenagers are the main suspects in a killing that occurred in an Itaewon Burger King. Both young men point the finger at the other for the violent stabbing of a Korean university student, and the thriller unfolds as a detective (Jung Jin-young) tries to uncover what really happened. This is the movie based on a murder mystery from 1997, which was never been fully resolved.
According to a source with the film production, this story differs from other murder-thriller movies like Memories of Murder or Voice of a Murder in which authorities pursue an unknown killer. In Itaewon Murder Case, the two suspects are already in custody, and police must decide which is the true culprit.
Itaewon Murder Case also stars actors Shin Seung-hwan, Go Chang-seok, Oh Kwang-rok, and Triple’s resident cutie Song Joong-ki. It is planning for a September release. Meanwhile, Jang Geun-seok also recently announced his next television role in the idol drama You’re Beautiful.
